Steve is playing in Atlanta with the Steep Canyon Rangers soon. That banjo bit from his early stand-up days was no shtick, he's been a known 1st rate picker since he got famous for being himself.

rasta -

Go search You Tube - there are several clips of Martin playing in a banjo militia lineup including Earl Scruggs and Pete Wernick. Martin more than holds his own. He currently has a couple of tunes getting some air time on Sirius-XM Bluegrass Track 14. "Daddy Played the Banjo" with Tim O'Brien on vocals is outstanding - superb banjo melody and lyrics only Martin could have written.

I vaguely recall a pic of Jerry and Steve Martin jamming backstage somewhere. Woodstock possibly?
